Stumbled on this little place on a rainy,windy morning whilst visiting Dumfries.. Breakfast menu is simple but has something for everyone. Food was nice & staff friendly. I will return & after other reviews I would try for maybe lunch or dinner.

This is a fake review and has been reported to tripadvisor. I notice that Casa Mia restaurant in Dumfries have also had a false review written by this member which has also been reported. Please ignore.

We visited for pizza and ice cream. Absolutely delicious and good value. It is a short walk from the man street hidden away a little, but look carefully!
